great shot, nice composition maybe a little tighter would be cool.

I think abit of noise reduction and maybe a richer blue will enhance theimage. hope u dont mind

Hi,

Nice edit by Ken.

I looked at this and instantly thought that the trails should have crossed - but then I thought that is just a little too "done to death" then looking at it again realised that it would have been (in my opinion) better to shoot a little earlier, leaving the viewer guessing if they actually may have hit each other?

Just my take on it - very nice catch though...

Impressive! I agree with Dom's comments but even so an awesome shot. Would make a great stock photo.

Now you mention it scot, I can see what's been done here. Very creative and it works extremely well.

Geez Scot, looking at the photo these aircraft were at pretty much the same altitude and on converging flight paths - that is a 'Near Miss' in the true sense of the word. Surprised both are not banking steeply to starboard. Great capture - I bet some of the critics oftoday's ATC wouldn't mind getting their hands on this shot :G

hey thanks

umm it was actually really easy

just did auto levels correction
Reworked highlight and shadows (Brought the sky more in check)
Increased mid tone levels to make image more dynamic
Increased saturation ever so slightly
Masked out planes and then run the image through noise ninja at a high level
Run plane laer through noise ninja at a lo level
Merged both images
and thts it

yea it did come out very well



thanks for comments

ken
